Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday.
It's the fabulous Nance's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great color challenge for us... oh... and... I'm obsessed with the photo she chose for the inspiration!
That pale robin's egg blue with the copper, pink and grey is a stunning - and very unexpected - color combo. Fabulous :-)
I decided to go with a floral for this and had this idea that I could create pink and grey flowers and then use my copper Kuretake metallic watercolors to color in between them. Ooooooopss..... I then found out that Copper wasn't one of the colors! So, I had to change it up and use my Polychromos pencils, which, luckily, had a copper pencil. It was harder work coloring with a pencil - but it is still quite pretty. It's much prettier in hand though, I must admit.
Here's my card:
and... grrr... the sentiment looks much more golden than it really is! But...I do love the new Altenew Adore You flowers and leaves colored in pink and grey. I used my favorite Studio Katia rectangles for the sentiment layer.
I hope you will join us and play along this week. If you are looking for some inspiration, you have to look no further than our fabulous design team:
On a personal note:
It was 45 degrees here today - crazy! The chickadee's thought spring had arrived early and were singing up a storm. It was also a good day to bring in all the Christmas decorations and prepare the front porch for spring. Tomorrow we will be able to do a little clean up in the screened in porch - but we know it is going to be quite a while before we can sit there :-)
I'll be back later in the week. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
